A man, a woman, an ailing child and music: a maelstrom of gut-wrenching emotions. 36-year-old Didier, a banjo player in a bluegrass group, worships all things American. Elise, 10 years his junior, owns a tattoo parlour. When they meet, it’s love at first sight. Their union produces the adorable little Maybelle. But six years later, fate deals them a hard blow. Berlinale laureate, Oscar nominee, winner of a César, The Broken Circle Breakdown is a gut-wrenching melodrama that goes straight to the heart.
